The piece was created to accompany Paolo Nutini's Tour of his album Caustic Love. I used a marbling technique coupled with his logo typography to give the effect of caustic erosion as well as a nod towards psychedelia which is something he had requested in the design.

The letters were laser cut from plywood and stacked up in 4 layers to create some depth. They were then stuck down on plyboard and primed white. I only had one shot at marbling the design so I experimented with a number of different marbling techniques and paints on scrap wood to find a look I was happy with. I opted for a single colour paint finish and once the piece was lifted from the tank it was photographed and put back into photoshop where I experimented with colour ways.
